ask: can sperm pass through underwear?

My boyfriend and I were making out and we both ended up in just our underwear on. He had cotton underwear on and I had very thin underwear on and a pair of silky tights. Can sperm pass through all these fabrics and cause a pregnancy?

Hello Anonymous,

No. This could not make you become pregnant.

Hi Anonymous,

I do not know why your girlfriend is having pain in her legs and right breast. I do know she is not pregnant because she had a period which started on October 25 and you said you engaged making out while fully clothed.

Hey thank you :)Im also sure that she can't be pregnant. But is there any way that sperm travel throug layers of clothing(underwear,pant,chudidar). Whenever she falls sick I'm comparing with this n I'm getting stressed :(

No. Sperm cannot travel through layers of clothing.

Even on her underwear? (thin underwear or everything)

Hi Anonymous,

No, sperm cannot pass through thin underwear.

Hi Anynous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to EmpowHer. No, sperm cannot penetrate through clothing and therefore, you would not have any concern for pregnancy.

Hope this helps.
